Have you ever wondered about the real lyrics to the song, “La Bamba”? Not to worry, because Ted Alexandro returned to Late Show with David Letterman last night and deconstructed the song for us. This leads naturally to a discussion on how we learn languages that are not English. And as long as Alexandro is getting all worldly, it’s also important to mention that he was willing to take on President Obama’s global status.

Ted’s a friend of the site. We like him. We hope you like him, too!
